What is an IV Infusion Treatment?
Intravenous (IV) hydration is a safe and fast way to provide your body with the nutrition it needs. Because IV hydration bypasses the digestive system, it is an effective way to deliver vitamins, electrolytes, and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream to restore your general health and wellbeing.
The digestive system metabolizes supplements that are consumed orally and reduces the amount of nutrients and vitamins that reach the bloodstream. Besides speeding up the effectiveness of treatment, IV therapy ensures 100% absorption, minimal waste, and vitamins are delivered directly to the cells that need them. IV therapy can improve and impact a wide variety of body functions.
IV hydration refreshes and replenishes your body with nutrients instantly, leaving you hydrated and revitalized. We offer several pre-formulated customized solutions to address a variety of issues.
How should I prepare for a IV?
Hydrate. The minerals and vitamins infused via IV are dehydrating at the cellular level and your body will be more responsive if you are hydrated prior to starting your IV. Also, if you are low on fluids the veins in your arms will be smaller and they tend to hide on us when we are looking for the best site to start your IV. Your response to the IV and finding a vein will be improved by drinking a few glasses of water before your appointment. Some of the vitamins and minerals can cause nausea if infused on an empty stomach so eating a snack high in protein may be helpful. Come dressed in comfortable clothing and bring something to read or music to listen to. Our IV infusion room has a large, heated massaging recliner, big screen TV, aromatherapy, and soft music to help you relax and enjoy your treatment.
What can I expect during my IV?
Your visit will start with a comprehensive complementary consultation with one of our Registered Nurses under the guidance of our medical director. They will take your vitals and go over your medical history. Each individual is different, and we provide personalized Infusion Bags that cater to your specific needs. The infusion is administered by injecting a catheter attached to a small tube directly into a vein. The tube is connected to an IV bag containing the vitamins, minerals and nutrients your body needs. Once attached to your arm, the solution slowly drips into your bloodstream. The duration of each session depends on the infusion being administered and your specific needs. Regardless of how long it takes, at Copper Tree Retreat, our staff is fully committed to making sure the experience is as comfortable as possible. You can bring a book or your headphones to listen to music in your heated massaging recliner. You can also have the peace of mind that comes from our knowledgeable, educated staff monitoring the transfusion.

Glutathione (GSH) is a tripeptide with a gamma peptide linkage between the amine group of cysteine (which is attached by normal peptide linkage to a glycine) and the carboxyl group of the glutamate side-chain. It is an antioxidant, preventing damage to important cellular components caused by reactive oxygen species such as free radicals and peroxides.
Usage: Detox, Antioxidant, antiviral, after stroke, before radiation, chelates some heavy metals, Cancer, Parkinson’s, ALS, Multiple Sclerosis.
Copper is a mineral. It is found in many foods, particularly in organ meats, seafood, nuts, seeds, wheat bran cereals, grain products, and cocoa products. The body stores copper mostly in the bones and muscles. The liver regulates the amount of copper that is in the blood. Copper is used as medicine.
Copper is used for treating copper deficiency and the anemia it may cause. Having too little copper (copper deficiency) is rare. It sometimes occurs in people who get too much zinc from diet or supplements, have intestinal bypass surgery, or are fed by feeding tubes. Malnourished infants can also have copper deficiency.
Usage: Improving wound healing and treating osteoarthritis and brittle bones (osteoporosis).
Vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It is used to: Form an important protein used to make skin, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels Heal wounds and form scar tissue Repair and maintain cartilage, bones, and teeth Vitamin C is one of many antioxidants. Antioxidants are nutrients that block some of the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are made when your body breaks down food or when you are exposed to tobacco smoke or radiation. The buildup of free radicals over time is largely responsible for the aging process. Free radicals may play a role in cancer, heart disease, and conditions like arthritis. The body is not able to make vitamin C on its own, and it does not store vitamin C.
Usage: Antiviral, antibacterial, adrenal fatigue, wound healing, cancer, immune support, improves vein integrity
Vitamin B12, vitamin B12 or vitamin B-12, also called cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin with a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood. It is one of the eight B vitamins. It is normally involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body, especially affecting DNA synthesis and regulation, but also fatty acid synthesis and energy production. Neither fungi, plants nor animals are capable of producing vitamin B12. Only bacteria and archaea have the enzymes required for its synthesis, although many foods are a natural source of B12 because of bacterial symbiosis.
Usage: Pernicious anemia, allergies, asthma, canker sores, atopic dermatitis, diabetic neuropathies, sciatica, fatigue, depression, insomnia, herpes zoster (shingles), psoriasis
NAD and NAD+ occur naturally in your body. They play a major role in the chemical process of generating energy. NAD+ is probably the most important co-factor for improving mitochondrial function. Mitochondria are intracellular organelles (a.k.a. "energy powerhouses") where macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, and fats from food) are converted to energy-rich ATP molecules for the cell. NAD helps the liver break down fats that are essential to provide energy for the body. It also helps create ATP, which is a major source of energy for cells. Boosting NAD+ may help manage a wide spectrum of diseases, ranging from diabetes to cancer. When NAD+ is given by IV (intravenous), some research has shown it can improve mental clarity, alertness, concentration, and memory. Moreover, NAD+ infusions may improve athletic endurance and reverse the symptoms of chronic fatigue.
2-hour infusion of 250mg NAD, utilizing a minimum of 500ML Normal Saline
4-hour infusion of 500mg NAD, utilizing a minimum of 500ML Normal Saline
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body and is essential to good health. Approximately 50% of total body magnesium is found in bone. The other half is found predominantly inside cells of body tissues and organs. Only 1% of magnesium is found in blood, but the body works very hard to keep blood levels of magnesium constant. Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. There is an increased interest in the role of magnesium in preventing and managing disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. Dietary magnesium is absorbed in the small intestines. Magnesium is excreted through the kidneys.
Usage: Natural calcium channel blocker used for hypertension, pre-eclampsia, arrythmias, muscle cramps, migraines, asthma, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome.
